Delightful. A home away from home. Our dog Candy is still missing the garden!

  • 5 of 5

Honey Pot Cottage is clean, very comfortable, cosy and well equipped. The welcome we received from Carol and Neil set the tone for our fortnight's stay and the little extras for the fridge, the bottle of wine and the lovely flowers - lasting until the end of our stay - were so thoughtful. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and ventured out there at every opportunity. We can recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a peaceful setting to relax in and to return to after a good day out. If you have a car you can visit many places of interest from here. If not the bus services are frequent and it doesn't take long to reach Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth in one direction and Beer, Seaton, Lyme Regis and beyond in the other. The Donkey Sanctuary (very spacious) is a must visit . Last, but no way least, is the wonderful Sidmouth less than two miles away. Do walk from Sidford along 'The Byes' by the River Sid into Sidmouth - it's lovely! You will not run out of walks in this area - there are several around Sidford, and Sidbury links up to the East Devon Way. Also plenty of walks in the places along the coast that you may visit including, of course, the coastal path. This is a wonderful part of the country but what makes it perfect is the ideal place to come back to at the end of the day and that place is Honey Pot Cottage. Carol and Neil have made it so and they do not intrude upon your privacy. However they are always on hand should you need any help at all. Anne and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our hosts for everything they provided.

Owner's Response: We are always delighted to receive a review which clearly tells us that our visitors have enjoyed 'HoneyPot' cottage and the garden, our aim being to create a little haven away from home. Our own love of Sidmouth seems to be reflected by many who visit and revisit. It has something for everyone, especially our lovely Byes riverside walk leading from here down to the sea. Thank you to Anne, Chris & Candy for your very helpful review, we appreciate the time you have taken. Online reviews really help to guide people. Also, pleasing is that many of our bookings are now from personal recommendation which we feel is the best way. Kindest Regards, wishes for happy times and special memories of Sidmouth😊

Our stay at Honey Pot Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our arrival at Honey Pot Cottage was up to my expectations. The area is lovely and the garden was beautiful. Unfortunately some personal issues came to the fore, which resulted in leaving me unwell and under medical supervision and also seeking advice from other sources.

Flaming June 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this delightful retreat. A glorious week of high temperatures sunshine and blue skies enjoyed in the beautiful garden and property. Honeypot Cottage is well insulated from the heat of the the day and cooled by sea breezes in the evening. The property is comfortably well equipped and furnished. Carol and Neil have provided an exceptionally good holiday rental property.

Wonderful cottage in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful cottage with a beautiful enclosed garden which our Golden Retriever greatly enjoyed. Carol, Neil and Honey are the prefect hosts, and the area is so dog friendly. The Byes is excellent and Sidmouth just a pleasant walk from here.

We have already booked for next year!!

Car: recommended


Honeypot Cottage is situated in the village of Sidford with two pubs, an award winning restaurant, local store and fish & chip shop. Our visitors love the beautiful 'Byes' country and riverside National Trust walk ( dog friendly) from the village down to the seafront. Visitors frequently say that a perfect day here is to walk down through the Byes, enjoy the town indulging in a browse around the many unique shops, a leisurely lunch, afternoon tea, a seafront walk, sit on a deck chair contemplating the horizon followed by a return Byes walk back to 'HoneyPot' cottage.


Exeter Airport and M5 junction 30 are 10 miles distant.


A few minutes walk to the amenities the village has to offer.

Just under 2 miles to Sidmouth by car or bus or the Byes riverside walk.

30 minutes approx. drive to the Cathedrral city of Exeter.

Further Details:

Sidmouth Folk festival has been celebrated in this lovely seaside town during the first week of August since 1955. It is a unique week long celebration of music, dance and song. The towns streets, glorious seafront and venues come alive ŷwith festive atmosphere as holiday makers and festival goers join together in a music based holiday to remember.
